Stephen Fried has just won a $1 million dollar grant from the Human Frontiers in Science Program (HFSP) to investigate the very question of how amino acids make life possible and ask ‘what if other amino acids were used instead?’. In this project, Fried and colleagues will try to go back in time and recreate […]

Congratulations to Dr. Vinayak Khodade (post-doc, Toscano Lab), who recently published a communication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society entitled “Development of S‑Substituted Thioisothioureas as Efficient Hydropersulfide Precursors.”
Congratulations to Prof. Kempa for receiving the NSF CAREER award! The NSF’s most prestigious award, the CAREER provides 5 years of funding to support the research and educational goals of early career faculty. These funds will support the Kempa group’s pioneering research in gas-phase synthesis of metal-organic frameworks with tailorable electronic properties.
The Second Decade Society (SDS) is the alumni leadership development organization for the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. The society’s membership is composed of 100 undergraduate alumni who are elected 10 to 20 years after graduation. SDS members are leaders in their professions and communities and contribute their talents in service to the university […]
Congratulations to Mayukh Bhadra (Karlin Lab) and Shane Byrne (Rokita Lab) for receiving the JHU Dean’s Teaching Fellowship! The fellowship will provide funding for teaching undergraduate courses in the 2019-2020 academic year. Bhadra will teach “Metals in Everyday Life,” while Byrne will teach “Nucleic Acids in Chemistry and Biotechnology.”
Congratulations to Kun Yang of the Greenberg group on his publication in PNAS entitled “Histone Tails Decrease N7-Methyl-2′-Deoxyguanosine Depurination and Yield DNA–Protein Cross-links in Nucleosome Core Particles and Cells” that was highlighted in C&EN News.
Congratulations to Sam Goldschmid and Avery Baumann for winning the Best Poster Award and Best Speaker Award, respectively, at the Young Researcher Conference hosted by Alliance for Diversity for Science and Engineering! Avery was one of six student speakers and Sam was competing with both graduate and undergraduate students.
The McQueen Lab reports the observation of inherent structural disorder in pyrochlores. The universality of local displacements within the pyrochlore structure adds to the known structural diversity and explains the extreme sensitivity to composition found in quantum spin ices and the lack of ferroelectric behavior in pyrochlores.

Congratulations to Prof. Hernandez and his postdoc Dr. Rakesh Singh, for having their article published in the newest edition of Chemical Physics Letters. Their research has been featured on the cover of the September 16th issue. Singh and Hernandez have shown that a simplified stochastic model can be used to describe the structure of hard-core soft shell […]
Congratulations to prof. Rigoberto Hernandez for being selected as the winner for the 2018 SERMACS Stan Israel Award! The Stanley C. Israel Regional Award recognizes individuals and/or institutions who have advanced diversity in the chemical sciences and significantly stimulated or fostered activities that promote inclusiveness within the region.
